How do you get out of a project that does not interest you or leverage your strengths? Been on an implementation for almost the last year now - good wlb and relationship with the client but not what I want to do long term. Had discussions with project MD about this and it’s always been “it will end soon” but keep getting extended by the client.... feel like I wasted my last year of my career and now feeling serious about leaving the firm. Am I not being appreciative? (quite a few are on bench)
